OWL: Theo to Kevin and Severus
Date: April 12, 2006
Characters: Theo, Kevin
Location: Forter Castle to Hogsmeade
Summary: Theo finally fulfils his promise to Kevin, while asking him for another "favour".
Theo glanced at the reports he'd been receiving lately, trying to make sense of it all. They were uneven at best – though Kevin's actions had certainly helped (even if they were a bit more…excessive than he'd had meant them to be). Still, those Kevin had talked to were now delivering their information as they were supposed to.
Others, however, were not. With a frown, Theo tried to make sense of the ones who weren't, trying to see the pattern. Yet the only one he could see was one he was not fond of at all.
Someone was taking over his contacts.
Reaching out for a piece of parchment and a quill he bit his lip, pondering whether to string Kevin on a bit longer – or hope he'd feel grateful enough to help him anyway. Finally he nodded and started to write.
Thanks to your help with my contacts I now have the information you seek. Enclosed to this letter is the whereabouts of your uncle.
I was hoping, however, that you'd do me yet another favour. There are still a few contacts who are not supplying me with information the way they are supposed to, and I am starting to suspect that they've offered their services to someone else.
What I need, is to find out who is paying them. With the address of your uncle, I'm also enclosing the name of one of my previously most loyal contacts. I would compensate you generously if you could find out who she is now working for. If you do choose to help me out, do note that Emelie is smarter than many, she will not respond well to force so do try a more gentle approach.
If you do not wish to do this for me, I more than understand, if so I will find someone else for the task.
Sealing the letter, he pondered the situation, deciding to write yet another one. Padma was getting restless, and he too wanted to go home, to return to their life. More than ever he could see how much he needed to be on top of things. Yet with his contacts as flaky as they were, he couldn't trust the rumours, not even from inside the Shack itself. Instead he needed reliable information from someone else. He could only hope Severus would be willing to supply him with it.
I have been hearing rumours about a new potion being used to fight off the Dragon Pox. Would that mean there is a treatment discovered?
As I'm sure you can understand, I am eager to pick up my lessons again, but I am also not willing to return until I can be sure that it's safe for my son. Any information would be appreciated.
